This was our second time to the Blue Water House. We came back mainly because of the incredibly close location to the beach and to revisit the cute little beach town of Lewes, DE. It's also extremely close to some great shops and restaurants.
The B&B overall is cute but perhaps in need of just a little TLC. There are areas that are in obvious need of repair and the grounds can seem a little eclectic (cluttered in some opinions).
The rooms are of decent size and have the basic amenities but have smaller beds and low thread count linens along with rather flat pillows. There was always a snack or beverage available in the dining area (wine and beer in the evening, water at all times).
The breakfast was average (do-it-yourself waffles, fresh fruit and pastries). The young lady "manning" the kitchen was very pleasant and was willing to take food requests for the guests (although we didn't take advantage).
The other reviews were accurate; there wasn't anyone available to check us in and/or out of the B&B. Our key was left in the door of our room (the wrong door but we eventually found it) when we checked in. Overall, the security was lacking which can make the guests feel a little uneasy.
Overall, this is a cute B&B. If you don't mind a more relaxed environment, feeling as if you are sharing a living space with strangers, and if you like to meet new people then this is perfect for you. If you prefer something more upscale with great service and privacy, try a hotel.
